Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Books We're Thankful For - […] 11. Stealing Parker: Miranda’s books are full of awesome characters (that bleed over between novels so you get to see glimpses of couples you loved in multiple books) and very real situations – family problems, trouble defining relationships, abandonment, etc. I wish a new Miranda book came out every month. I would be the happiest girl on earth if this were real. (My review.) […]

Anna - Yes, I very much WOULD like to read this now! Can’t wait to get my hands on it! Glad you loved it.

Kristen Evey - I’ve been wanting to read Catching Jordan for awhile now, and this also sounds really good! I just read two other books that have to deal with faith and God and questions and doubts, etc. They were both extremely well done. Excited to add another to that list. 🙂 Thanks for the review Magan.

Ginger @ GReads! - How did I miss this review?! Gah. You put everything in to words so perfectly! Oh how I adore this book. I loved the correlation you made between Honor’s roadtrip and your own. There’s something quite therapeutic about venturing off, leaving your past behind, and embarking on a new future. Love. Love. Love.

Magan - Meg, there were some beautiful scenes from the road trip. Really great writing! I hope you enjoy!

April 9, 2012 - 1:33 pm

Magan - Same here, Jacinda! I really thought Jessi’s writing got even better in In Honor! I’m glad you enjoyed it, too! 🙂

April 9, 2012 - 1:22 pm

Jacinda @ The Reading Housewives - I loved this one too. 🙂 I was afraid I wasn’t going to like it much because I only like Moonglass so-so…but I ended up liking it more, so I’m happy!

April 9, 2012 - 10:10 am

Meg - Oooh, I love road trip fiction — though the reality of a real road trip is usually not as exciting! This sounds like a great read. This is my first time seeing it, but definitely adding to my wishlist.

Magan - Aneeqah, I seriously got lucky. I have no idea how I ended up with a copy. I went by their booth so many times scoping it out. 🙂 Haha. WHEN you get a chance to read this, DO IT!

April 7, 2012 - 11:31 pm

Magan - So do I, April! There’s so much to love about this book! Read it soooooooon!

April 7, 2012 - 5:07 pm

April Books & Wine - In Honor sounds solid. Also? I really like Jessi Kirby’s writing. AND THE MILITARY. AND ROAD TRIPS. And potential love interests.

Aneeqah - I really wish I could have picked up a copy of this book at ALA Midwinter! Unfortunately, they were all out when I asked for a copy. =( But, I’m definitely going to be picking this up when it comes out! It looks like such a cute book, and really filled with depth. I love road-trip stories, those are so much fun. I can’t wait to be picking this up! Great review. =)
